Today marks the end of the 4th six weeks of the school year. For me, this always signals the beginning of the end process of the school year. We will start the banquet season soon. We have baseball, softball, track, soccer, and golf going at the same time. Our TAKS testing will start next week. Field trips will start soon. We have spring break in another two weeks. In other words, the rest of the school year will go by quickly.
Next week, we will be looking at the numbers through the end of the 4th six weeks. As we have in the past, we will examine our attendance numbers and see how these numbers are affecting our state aid.
Our baseball tournament continues today, as well as soccer. Our soccer teams are traveling to Whitehouse this afternoon. The games will begin at 5:30.
Also, this Saturday, February 28, our FFA Booster Club will be hosting its annual chili cookoff and auction. If you have not had an opportunity to attend this event in the past, I encourage you to make plans to attend on Saturday. The chili judging starts at 5:30. This will be followed at 6:00 by a chili supper in which you get to sample many different varieties of chili. At 6:30, the auction starts. This is always a fun time for everyone. Special thanks goes out to Danny Davis and the rest of the FFA Booster Club for their hard work and dedication in putting this event together.
If you are still in the mood for basketball, EASA is hosting the 5th and 6th grade girls tournament on Saturday. Eustace has two girls teams competing against other area teams. The tournament starts at 8:00 AM and runs all day.
I hope everyone has a great weekend.
